Last week I wrote about a Time magazine article that basically endorsed Barack Obama for president. I went through a whole slew of voting statistics that indicate the man is far to the left of the average American. I also conceded that he does have a great personality and at least a tone of racial reconciliation.
Well, the magazine might get its wish. Obama, a newcomer to the Senate, has gone on the record that he’s thinking about running for the nation’s highest office in 2008. He’d previously said he wouldn’t. If he wins, he’ll have served only four years of his six-year Senate term.
Of course, he also made clear that he hasn’t completely made up his mind yet. Right now he’s focused on promoting his book, and Democrats for the Nov. 7 election.
Finally, on the media bias front, the Post borders on factual error when it claims “his political stock has been rising as a potentially viable centrist candidate…” Viable, perhaps, but centrist, no. Again, see my old post.
